6 Astell Street, 6 December

Soon I imagine, you will be having exams or their equivalent. And this is a happy thing because you know that it is no longer a matter of one human mind testing another human mind, but the occasion for the one, infinite Mind that we call God to show forth His own effortless intelligence. It says in Isaiah, “Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, … that I am he” (Isa. 43:10). And this is all we are ever being: just witness to the intelligence, happiness, certainty, ability and presence of God.

It also says in the Psalms, “…he will bring forth thy righteousness” (Ps. 37:6). This is all there is to bring forth. The word ‘righteousness’ originally meant ‘right knowing’ and so all that ever comes forth in your experience is your right knowing about everything.

The Mind that sets the question is the Mind that answers it, and it is all for the glory of God: the opportunity to show forth all the qualities of God.
